Hippy, the helix pair viewer


Download version 1.1 the program for Windows here

If you get an error message when you try to run it, you likely do not have the glut library installed on your computer. If this is the case, download this file,
and save it in your C:/WINDOWS/system folder.
For more info on glut, see Nate Robin's page.

Hippy looks for pdb files in a folder called pdbfiles in the directory that it is in. If you would rather put your pdbfiles somewhere else, you can specify a relative path.

If you would like to just give Hippy a quick test drive, but aren't sure where to start, try the following:
1. Download it.
2. If you haven't installed glut yet, do that.
3. If you have no pdb files that you're using yet, grab this one, and put it in a folder called pdbfiles in the same directory where you put hippy.
4. Run Hippy, and type 1a0a for the protein name, and 2 and 4 for each helix index.
5. Play, and have fun! (and learn)
